Glasvegas played at the Leeds Festival tonight (August 28), playing second from the top of the bill on the NME/Radio 1 Stage.

Watch a video interview with the band by clicking on the right.

Playing before headliners Gossip, the Glasgow four-piece drew a large crowd despite going up against Main Stage headliners Arctic Monkeys, whose set began while Glasvegas were still onstage.

The band opened their set with 'Flowers And Football Tops', with frontman James Allan changing the lyrics to, "Leeds, I love you" at the end of the song.

Later on, after playing 'Please Come Back Home', Allan ditched his guitar and grabbed the microphone to lead the band through a cover of The Korgis' 'Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime'.

Following Allan telling the crowd, "How good you look" and a mass singalong for 'Go Square Go', they ended with their customary closer 'Daddy's Gone'.

Again, the Scot grabbed the microphone, lying on the stage to sing as the crowd bellowed the chorus back to him, soaking up applause from the front of the stage.

Glasvegas played:

'Flowers And Football Tops'
'Lonesome Swan'
'It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry'
'Fuck You It's Over'
'Please Come Back Home'
'Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime'
'S.A.D. Light'
'Go Square Go'
'Daddy's Gone'
